these “you have the option to either play as a dude or a girl but the game expects you to play a man so when you play as a woman nothing changes and it becomes kinda gay”-games are very very lazy and shouldn’t be praised for it hOWEVER as a lesbian who has barely anything……….

Here’s how M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to The Last Airbender should go:

Proceed from the first movie. The plot roughly follows Season 2. They’re looking for an earthbending teacher for Aang, and finally encounter Toph. She is played by a large, musclebound man.

Suddenly we zoom out. Everyone is on a stage. The real Gaang (appropriately cast) watches from the audience. We have been watching the movie’s version of the Ember Island Players this entire time. What a twist.

Didn’t even know people are not allowed to give blood if they are gay

MLM are not allowed to give blood. That includes gay men; bisexual and pansexual men; gay, bi, and pan trans men; and possibly even straight trans women.

The day my friends and I signed up to donate blood, I was SO happy to be helping someone in the world with what little efforts I could attribute but the lady doing the paperwork was like, “Ooo. Soorryyyy. Times are changing fast so hopefully you will be able to donate someday” and it broke my little heart that I couldn’t meaningfully contributing to society with my friends as they light-headedly regrouped with me and asked “Why didn’t you get your blood taken?”

Also if you had sex in the last 12 months with a man who had anal or oral sex with another man.

Or if you’ve had any blood transfusions since 1980.

Or if you have had sex with a “drug user” in the last 12 months (the definition on this ranges.)

or if you have had sex with a sex worker or had sex with someone who has had sex with a sex worker in the last 12 months.

Piercings or tattoos in the last 12 months.

EVER done intravenous drugs.

Been incarcerated for 72+ hours in the last 12 months.

Certain medications and medical conditions. (An understandable one.)

Oh and if you’re trans? You are supposed to self-identify and “self report” if you want to donate.

Which is ridiculous since ALL BLOOD IS TESTED AFTER DONATION. And they will toss the blood and contact the donor if it tests positive for any diseases. I know someone who couldn’t afford a blood test so they donated JUST to see if they got a call back that their blood was unusable.

And all these stipulations can (and have) been LIFTED in times of great crisis, so you gotta ask… how important are these especially since its tested anyways…? Definitely donate responsibly. But the stipulations are ridiculous.

Our generation can’t donate as easily. And we’re blamed for it. I had chemotherapy treatments and am unable to donate and have still gotten shamed when pushy attendants try to ask “don’t you WANT to help?”

And as for the news:

In Wake Of Vegas Tragedy, Lance Bass Slams Gay Blood Donor Ban

You also can’t donate if you were in Europe for 6+ months in the 1980’s. Its an obscure one, because of the whole mad cow disease thing, but its a real one, and the main reason I can’t donate (and get harassed for “not wanting to help”)

Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her. 

I can’t stop watching this. 

Whoa.

Okay so this is true, but a tiny part of a wider truth. 

Ginger Rogers was a FUCKING BADASS. Ignore for a sec the rampant sexism in Hollywood (they once bleached  her hair blonde in wardrobe without telling her beforehand), the fact that she fought her whole career against typecasting and stereotyping from fellow actors (Katharine Hepburn famously said of the Astaire/Rogers partnership “she gave him sex. He gave her class” ) for starting out in musicals, and went on to have a career lasting over fifty years, winning a Best Actress Oscar (Kitty Foyle, 1940). But… JUST focusing on the Astaire movies…

Not only did she dance “backwards” in high heels, the dances were a task in themselves. Astaire was an absolute perfectionist and choreographed for himself, so as a younger, less experienced dancer Rogers came in at a disadvantage and worked her ass off to match him. 

Then there’s the filming complications… these numbers were filmed in ONE TAKE. So one thing goes wrong and you have to start over. Maybe you make a mistake or maybe your dress flies up because…

Ginger had to contend with her wardrobe. Dancing in heels is the norm at this time, but dancing in a dress designed for cinema cameras… not so much. They were heavy, embellished, uncomfortable, restrictive and cumbersome and essentially a third member of the dance, strapped to the body of one partner.Not only did she have to dance and look good, she had to control the dress too!

Take this routine from Swing Time… (it gets going proper at 1:30ish)

This dress has weights, YES WEIGHTS, sewn in to the hem to make it fly out and create a visual effect. So it’s heavy, it hurts if it hits you, and your partner gets mad if it hits him. So you gotta control it. 

Well it turns out all these factors on this set, this particular day aren’t going so well. So you’re doing take after take, here’s no labour laws, so at 4am after 18 hours you’re still going, even though part of the routine requires you to spin up those curved stairs with no rail at high speed….

Okay so now back to those high heels. In Ginger’s autobiography she vividly remembers this night as the night she bled though her shoes. They did so many takes, her feet blistered, bled, and the white satin high heels she was wearing finished he night pink because they were literally full of blood. And still they keep shooting. She keeps dancing.

The take they use in the film is the last. Early hours. Bloody feet. And she spins, acts and bosses out until that last second. Because she was that professional, talented and bloody minded. This is the last set of spins… 

So I say once again. Ginger Rogers was a badass.

She did everything Fred Astaire did backwards, in high heels, wearing a 20 pound dress, exhausted, injured and standing in a pool of her own blood. And watching her perform, you would never know.

ok my problem w ‘perpetuating stereotypes’ is like… u cant blame someone for perpetuating a stereotype if thats who they are. what is perpetuating stereotypes: a straight man acting flamboyant to pretend to be gay. what isnt: a gay man actually being flamboyant. u cant blame a flamboyant gay man/a promiscuous bi person/ etc for perpetuating negative stereotypes against themselves

EXACTLY. It’s okay to fit stereotypes, just not to mimic a stereotype.
